Anyone heard any news on the 2020 sentinel? I read on another forum that they’re waiting to release it for a little while buy it will have more travel, different geo - still in SBG but something like 63.5 head angle. Thoughts?

Interesting all the rumors I have heard say no changes for the sentinel besides some components
Any info on when it’s coming out?

Anyone move from the stock 40mm stem to something a little shorter like a 35mm? I am looking to shrink up my reach just a bit but wonder if that will effect the whole SBG package too much.

1. Stock geometry is not perfect and inviolable. Companies proclaimed their geometry to be perfect in the '90s and look how much it's changed. Perhaps it was perfect for how we were riding at that time or perhaps it limited how we could ride. Either way, riding styles have changed and geometry changed along with it. You are as qualified as anyone to initiate further evolution.

2. If your body, riding style, and / or preferences do not perfectly align with your equipment, change your equipment.

3. SBG is no more a "package" - and no more sensitive to changes - than any other bike's geometry.

4. A 5 mm change in stem length is barely enough to notice, let alone worry about.

Bottom line: Do it.

Don't hear or see many. Saw a photo of a carbon Sentinel after hitting a tree. Woops! Transition replaced the frame immediately.

Just picked up an ‘18 on closeout and couldn’t be happier. Coming from a Scout, this thing is a beast. About 34 lbs as it sits right now.

What are your thoughts on the Sentinel coming from the Scout? Are technical climbs significantly harder? Setting up for tight switchbacks? Jumping?

Contact Transition and request the Pantone code or any relevant specs. They make little to no money on touch-up paint, so there's no reason to be guarded with the specs.

Tech climbs are actually easier. The traction of the 29er plus the seat tube angle really go a long way. Switchbacks descending can be tricky. However, I’m starting to get used to it and I just make better line choices. I’m not a very good jumper but I don’t notice much difference compared to the Scout in the air.
